Some links to uploaded Immersion articles (SV to EN):

Need to be translated:

Translated ones, need to checked:


From English to Swedish: (thanks, PaoloLim!)


thecupcakefarmer's weekly article

The user thecupcakefarmer has started a weekly Swedish Immersion program, as you can see here. Once a new article is uploaded, the previous one will be removed.


I'll keep posting more articles, and will remove the ones that are completed (once they are). I believe davidvdb's "Immersion for all languages" post should be sticky, but I think Duolingo wouldn't allow that :P

If you have uploaded a document and would like it to be seen or checked by the community, you can give me the link either here in the comments or in my stream, and I'll be sure to include it.

Thank you very much!

This brilliant fellow coder found out a way to upload documents to Immersion for every language on Duolingo. But the coolest part is that this is not possible only for the currently available languages we have in the website, but other ones, such as Finnish and Icelandic :D

Unfortunately, we don't actually have Swedish Immersion yet. This is more of a loophole that was found, to upload articles in any language. But as some A/B tests are currently being ran, we Immersion might be removed completely from the website, even for the languages that have the tool currently.

I believe the regular Immersion standards are applied here. I tried to upload the "Sverige" page in Swedish, but the system refused it because of its length. Thus I supppose small to medium texts are fine, which should be enough for the translation purpose.

So I got the part about uploading the article and then clicking inspect when it gives you no language options. But I'm stuck on what to put where in the code. Is it sv} for none? or none selected? Or both? I can't seem to get it to accept anything but I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Inside the <>, in the "None", you erase the None word and in the same place you write "en}" (without the quotes).

If 'sv' is for Swedish, what's the code for Norwegian course offered here? I tried typing 'no' but rather than the Norwegian flag, it was just the DL logo that appeared. I presume 'no' is not the code tied to the official DL course.

Unfortunately, I imagine it won't be long before Duolingo takes this capability away, once they realise that people are abusing the system to do things that (in their eyes) it "isn't supposed to". :(

We wouldn't be talking about this if DL made this clearly popular feature available more widely in the first place. I mean it can put disclaimers and all of those things so that users won't see any contributions as 'official'.

So here's an idea: Those of us who decide to upload new articles, could you put a link to them at the top? This can then become the official Swedish Immersion thread. :)

As britta222 mentioned some weeks ago, you can access the immersion area of any offical language-pair by the same two windows tweak with which the word lists get usable for languages which don't have a word tab. If someone has mentioned that before, excuse me. I did not read all the splittered posts. https://www.duolingo.com/comment/11499802

Immersion has always been available for the original languages (ES, IT, DE, PT, FR), for any level. However people found a way to upload documents to any language, and I did for Swedish.

In Immersion you read an article in the target language, and you translate it. If you hover the words, the system gives you translations, although one should not rely only on them.
